National Express has committed to become an accredited Living Wage Foundation employer in the UK, the first private transport group to do so. The pledge will benefit hundreds of workers across our UK Bus, Coach and Rail businesses. Outside of the UK we guarantee to pay rates of 10% above national minimum wage pay.
Our UK Bus business has lead the way and was the first to be an accredited Living Wage employer, from January 2016. The UK Coach and Rail businesses will follow by the end of 2017.
The company’s pledge to ensure that all members of staff earn a real Living Wage was welcomed by senior politicians.
Patrick McLoughlin MP, Secretary of State for Transport, said: “I welcome National Express’ decision to become a Living Wage employer. This important step will have a real impact and demonstrates the success of our transport sector. National Express plays a vital role in helping people go about their daily business.”
